President-elect Trump addresses workers at Carrier plant in Indiana
A triumphant President-elect Donald Trump celebrated Thursday the sealing of a deal with air-conditioning manufacturer Carrier that would keep about 1,100 jobs in the United States, halting the company’s planned move of its Indianapolis plant to Mexico.
“United Technologies has stepped up,” Mr. Trump said, referring to the company that owns Carrier, as he addressed reporters and workers at the Indiana factory. “They’re going to spend so much money on renovating this plant.”
“Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences. It’s not gonna happen,” he vowed, citing plans for his incoming administration to lower taxes and cut regulations. (CBS News)
